Greetings from Chennai everyone.

The first round of the Olympiad took place yesterday and Britain defeated the Netherlands 4-0.
I won as white against the Slav defence.
Today We are playing Iran but I am not playing in this match.
Best Wishes
to All

We defeated Iran 2.5-1.5.
today we play Poland on table 2
Good luck Team GB! And to Steve's Scottish contribution within it. According to the Greenock Telegraph, I believe we must all also thank a pair of well-known recent Lottery winners from the Inverclyde area for sponsoring Steve's particpation fully!?
We are now on 4 wins from 4 matches!! In round three we defeated Poland and in round 4 India A by the same score 2.5-1.5. We play Spain tomorrow and we are ahead of the Russians!!

Results update

Round 5 UK 1.5 Spain 2.5
Round 6 UK 0.5 Ukraine 3.5
Round 7 UK 1.5 Germany 2.5
Round 8 UK 3.5 Slovenia 0.5

Last round later today. I make the Uk 7th going into the final round. It's all quite tight at the top with the top five still with a chance of winning the tournament and the top 7 with a chance of the medal places.

Russia lead the way from Spain, Ukraine and Germany.

We got the Russians in the last round!! Sadly we were losing 3-0 to them with only Crouch's game against Meshkov the only game left. I lost on board 3 to the former World Champion Sergey Krylov after 55 moves.
Still there is the Marymass to look forward to next weekend Big Grin

Still I was re elected as Secretary General of the IBCA for another 5 years!!.
